  1. I've noticed a couple things in this forum and on the two jiras related to the hide online status.  There's two things I think need said:

    1) for the people worried that the adboards will be broken by some of these changes: Owners and creators of a script designed to show online function will still be able to have their status seen by the object.  So store owners can still have  a status indicator for customers. 

    2) RE: RLV and temp uploads: Oz stated RLV is safe.  Other Lindens I talked to said Temp textures should also be safe.

    3) The viewer tag I think is an unfortunate causualty of the fact there are viewers that display not only the viewer tag but the ip and even in some cases the computer specs, mac address and such that people then use to attempt to track down other users.

    4) I see a lot of Blame The Victim mentality here in terms of victims of stalking.  "Oh they should just go to the police."  In fact police are limited to what they can do to protect people.  The simple fact is that LL has a moral and legal obligation to protect user privacy and they sometimes are forced to take draconian measures in order to protect the company.  Linden Lab is far from the only gaming company breaking functionality in order to provide comply with existing or pending privacy regulations in a variety of countries.

    That said, I do feel the new tvp policy is badly written and I do feel that it would have been better if LL had implimented changes to LSL that were more in keeping with what the Jiras had asked for: Namely that LSL functions follow the same rules of the built in viewer online status check.

  2. This is a thread for questions and requests for clarification to LL under the new third party viewer policy that I (and presumably others) would like to see adressed by LL.  I am kindly asking that this thread be limited to only questions (and any answers Lindens would be so nice to give).  Explanations or clarifications needed to understand the questions are okay.  There is already another thread with comments and speculation about the policy. 

    To begin with section there are many questions I have regarding 2.k.

    "2.k : You must not provide any feature that alters the shared experience of the virtual world in any way not provided by or accessible to users of the latest released Linden Lab viewer."

    1) What is meant by shared experience?

    2) What counts as the latest released Linden Lab viewer?  Do the Snowstorm and Beta viewers count as released?

    3) Does this mean systems like RLV and integrated AO's are no longer allowed?

    4) Does this mean that third party viewers may no longer experiment with and help test new features?

    5) Does this mean that text only viewers or "voice only" viewers would no longer be allowed?

  3. Theres two ways to verify.  the one you did will get you into anywhere that has "must be age verified" checked in land options.

    To get the search as well you have to have some form of payment info on file with LL.

    If you have both of these checked make sure you have gone to preferences and selected you wish to see general, moderate, and adult content.

    until that is switched it will not let you do adult or moderate searches...

  4. if peewee's answer still does not help then try clearinge the cache (again) manually.  if that STILL doesn't work, you will have to file a support ticket asking for a inventory reset and perhaps an account "hijacking" so that lindens can investigate the issue.

  5. ooh  I dont think we have 360 support in SL though I could be wrong.  can you please check the jira for related issues, and if you cannot find one, please create a jira issue as a feature request and sent me a notecard with the jira number?

    I'll be honest, most likely whether this is a bug or a genuine feature request it will likely take a while to get fixed unless a open source dev happens to take a shine to it and fix it, but having the issue reported means it is more likely to get spotted...

  6. hmm it -should- uncheck afaik. please go ahead and see if there is a jira on this if you know how to search jira.  if you don't know how to search it, please just go ahead and file a jira on this. either way send me a notecard with the jira number please.

    edited to make additions to be more precice and to be more within jira guidelines

  7. There can be many reasons for this.  If its a permissions thing it will usually expand upon this and state that either the parcel is full or that you don't have permission to rez there.  If you are also having issues with attachments though, then you need to file a ticket urgently and stop trying to rez things lest you lose inventory.

    support.secondlife.com/contact-support.php I believe is the direct link to support.


    editted to fix spelling

  8. most likely the processor is an american company. the 3 digit securtiy code is a feature that major credit cards such as visa, mastercard, and discover now require most american and many non american credit companies to ask for.  the idea is that since that number is not in the magnetic strip you have to actually have the card in hand to use it.  most likely your credit card will fail any and all transactions over the net that do not include the card... 

  9. unless you are a conseirge member, support only has a phone number for billing questions.

    if you are at least premium level you can get access to the live chat though for over a year now that has rarely been worth the effort. In all honestly support tickets are your best bet but be prepared to wait for weeks or even months for an answer...  and even then often its canned and takes a reply to escelate it ...

  10. I also suspect heat.  have you tried checking to see if your fans are fully functional?

    my second thought is that it might be from numberous installs of second life building up over the years. 

    Back up your roaming file. Uninstall ALL versions of second life.  Run a registry clean up program to remove any remaining registry keys.  restart the computer then reinstall... 

  11. which device was it?  Im guessing either audio or video... very likely if you have an ati or intel graphics card the card crashed.  its pretty common sadly. it happens on my laptop ALL the time... 

    sometimes you can simply restart sl, but if the driver was completely disabled you will have to restart your machine...

    sorry, that is the best i can help without knowing which drivers were stopped...

  12. If a manual cache clearing fails try the following.

    first make sure RLV is off. 

    then try rendering test female avatar. this is done in phoenix through the advanced menu which can be accessed through control alt d

    scroll down to charactor

    select charactor tests

    then select test female

    this should solve it. 

    If that fails, then you'll need to try with another viewer and if you still have the same issue you will need to file a support ticket...

  13. Two things:

    1) Residents with involvement in snowstorm should automatically get ranks with good priveleges.  Why? because many of us have contributed to the jira and KB and dont always follwo the forums or answers, but when we do, we usually have a perspective and expertise that many don't. 


    2) allot of the worst behaved of the old forums (who are also the reason that allot of the snowstorm, new users, and old users DONT use the forums and answers) were given really rediculously high rankings. For example one of the worst offenders that should have been banned of the forums a long time ago for harassment (she all the time uses racist remarks, offensive terms like "deputy dawg" and "ar tard", and calls people obsceneties all the time), disclosure (such as peoples rl professions, rl locations, alts, and conversations), spam, and even bragging about illegal activites such as drugs, prositution, and stuff was given one of the highest rankins... Why?
